Well there you have it.
Well there you have it.
True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.
Read this article; it’s short and worthwhile, and uses points of reference nearly everyone in our culture can understand. I don’t think I’ve ever seen male privilege outlined so levelly and succinctly.

Awwww Yeahh. You bet your sweet patootie I’m Employee of the Month! :D
i don’t get why people believe feminists hate men
i don’t get why a movement that is for women is so misunderstood to the point where it’s still about men
This monstrosity took over an hour to put together and then took another freaking twenty minutes to get out onto the floor because it wouldn’t sliiide. #why
When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.
Thank. You. For. Saying. This.
